Author Reading | This Is Not Propaganda: Adventures in the War Against Reality


Perhaps the most important global trend of the last few years has been the rise—and transformation—of information warfare. In the digital age, real military engagement matters less than how it is broadcast. The result is a constant deluge of lies, shock humor, absurdity, and fear-mongering—a circus atmosphere created to disorient us and undermine our sense of truth. In This Is Not Propaganda, celebrated and oft-cited “disinformation expert” Peter Pomerantsev takes us on a Pynchonian-like journey behind enemy lines of the endless, multinational information war. In his signature style—by turns analytical, poetic, lurid, and funny—Pomerantsev explores the contours of this new global order.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term 'baroque' has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was 'maestro di capella' at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today's music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi's advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 10, 2019 to May 20, 2020.

Book Club | Laura: A Detective Novel Adapted Into A Movie


Many of us know the movie, but how many of us have read the book?!? This course examines the forces at play during the 1930s and 40s which gave rise to cynical depictions of American society and culture in literature, to which Hollywood responded with the creation of film noir. Novels that reflect pressing social and political issues of the times, including gender, race and economics will be read and discussed and subsequently a scene or two from each film will be watched as it is considered as a literary adaptation. This session Laura (1942, 1943), a detective novel by Vera Caspary, will be discussed. It is her best known work, and was adapted into a popular film in 1944, with Gene Tierney in the title role.

Opening Reception | The Tribeca Show: 5 Photographers


More than two decades ago Tribeca-the-neighborhood became Tribeca-the-global-brand. Everything from racehorses to rap artists to bars, bracelets, and yachts have taken the name. “It has an ultra-cool, hip and happening feel to it,” said a Los Angeles designer about his new necklace, the Tribeca. Actually, no it doesn’t. Not to those who know the neighborhood. The Tribeca Show undertakes a de-branding of Tribeca through the perspectives of five Tribeca-based photographers. Their work, each in a different way, counters the area’s over-hyped reputation for trendiness and glamour. The show is curated by April Koral and Carl Glassman, whose publication, The Tribeca Trib, has been chronicling Tribeca in news, features, and photography for 25 years. Photos by Glassman, a photojournalist and documentary photographer, along with images by photographers Donna Ferrato, Marc Kaczmarek, Susan Rosenberg Jones, and Allan Tannenbaum, present a nuanced portrait of the neighborhood across decades that defies the media’s insistent focus on celebrity and wealth. The show is completed by archival photographs that highlight the evolving past as visual context to the Tribeca of today.

Author Reading | New York Recentered: Building the Metropolis from the Shore


Kara Schlichting examines the city’s geographic edges—the coastlines and waterways—and the small-time unelected locals and residents who quietly, but indelibly, shaped the modern city alongside power brokers like Robert Moses. It challenges the idea that urbanization is always a linear progression and that growth is always directed by central planners and government officials.  Ordinary citizens (like joggers in waterfront parks!) also played a role. Her book is a synthesis of planning history, environmental history and urban history that recasts the story of our city.

Author Reading | The Enigma of Clarence Thomas: A Justice Unrobed


In the first examination of its kind, Corey Robin delves deeply into both Thomas's biography and his jurisprudence, masterfully reading his Supreme Court opinions against the backdrop of his autobiographical and political writings and speeches. The hidden source of Thomas's conservative views, Robin shows, is a profound skepticism that racism can be overcome. Thomas is convinced that any government action on behalf of African-Americans will be tainted by racism; the most African-Americans can hope for is that white people will get out of their way.

Discussion | Two Doc Queens: 2 Filmmakers Discuss Their Work


Known as the ‘Doyenne of Documentaries,’ Sheila Nevins has produced dozens of Oscar, Peabody, and Emmy-winning films (“When the Levees Broke,” “Citizenfour”). Nevins recently left HBO — after an incredible 38-year run — to lead MTV’s new documentary division. Erin Lee Carr has been stunningly prolific in a relatively nascent career as a filmmaker, directing such acclaimed documentaries as “At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal,” “I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth v Michelle Carter,” as well as “Mommy Dead and Dearest.” The two doc queens join in a cross-generational conversation about their work, and what the future holds for the next generation of documentary filmmakers.

Play | Measure for Measure: An Adaptation of Shakespeare's Classic Comedy


It's 1979, Mardi Gras has been officially cancelled, yet the community is still celebrating. Temporarily left in charge by the Duke, the upright and uptight Lord Angelo has decided to crack down on the city's debauchery, arresting young Claudio for impregnating his fiancee Juliet before their wedding. When virtuous Isabella, Claudio's sister, hears of his death sentence, she begs Lord Angelo for mercy. But hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother's life. In this timely production, lovers and leaders in disguise reveal how those in power take advantage of those without it - asking the question, can the law be both just and merciful? The all-black women cast features Jasmine Batchelor (Isabella), Nora Carroll (Escalus/Juliet), Toccarra Cash (Lucio), Alfie Fuller (Pompey), Adrian Kiser (Angelo), Gabrielle Murphy (Provost), Jacqueline Nwabueze (Understudy), Latonia Phipps (Mariana/Overdone), and Grace Porter (Duke).

The second installment of France-Luce Benson's Haitian Revolution trilogy, this play is about an enslaved African healer turned rebel soldier, and Valentine, a French woman sold into marriage to a plantation master form an unlikely alliance.
